This chapter discusses Huang Binhong's very first solo exhibition that was also curated by Fou Lei. Although this was viewed by his friends as an unlikely project, Lei saw it as a chance to work closely with a senior artist. At the same time, he would be able to learn more about the medium (brush and ink) that was very important to any understanding of Chinese culture. Looking back, this was the largest and most ambitious exhibition that Fou Lei curated. The letters between Fou Lei and Huang Binhong during this time clarified the many facets of the project. The chapter also includes some of the paintings displayed in the exhibit, as well as Lei's write-up of the exhibition.

Keywords:   solo exhibition, medium, brush and ink, Chinese culture, letters, write-up, paintings, Fou Lei, Huang Binhong
